“Hybrid Hotel”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This hotel manages to be the perfect time for couples, family and business. It is a boutique hotel with a friendly and helpful service.

We always make some treats for your guests and make available quality products.

The restaurant is 5 stars. Recently (more or less) one year there was a change of chef and the food was even better.

The room is not big, but very clean and comfortable.

The hotel is worth every penny. Brazilian standards is expensive, but if we think in a daily dollar costs around 500 USD.

Every city has a style of hotel that suits it best, and in chaotic SP, the Emiliano assures me tranquility, comfort, cleanliness and great service without sacrificing location. The neighborhood is very residential in nature but the street - Oscar Freire - boasts some of the best local boutiques and restaurants nearby (distance is key in SP).

The staff is wonderful and accommodating and once you make a friend behind the desk, you can rest assured that your requests will be handled with determination and care. The same extends to all the back office staff as well who are efficient. The lobby and bar area are quiet by Brazilian standards but in my book that is a definite plus. There is a real boutique feel to the hotel despite the high-rise design.

The rooms are thoughtfully designed and well-appointed and the showers powerful and spacious. Kudos to early adoption of Toto toilets s well! My only negative comment would be that the common areas on the floors can be a little dark and in places need some touching up. The spa was under renovation having moved down from the top floors but should be reopened by now.

The jewel in the crown is the helipad on the roof - a typical mod con in the metropolis. During the various transport strikes that immediately preceded the World Cup, it proved to be a godsend, helping my and my colleagues avoid 4-5 hour traffic jams coming in and out of the airport as we struggled with tight meeting agendas.

Room Tip: The top suite is the most interesting but most rooms are otherwise similar in style since there are...

Small by the size, great by any other consideration.
Best location in town, on Oscar Freire, just in front the best coffee shop in Sao Paulo, Santo Grao.
Great suites with perfect beds and wonderful swimming pool on the roof top.
A while ago, I stay at this hotel 3+ month in a row while relocating in Sao Paulo. It was perfect.

I’ve spent a couple of nights at the Emiliano, it was my first time in SP and overall was extremely pleased with my hotel choice.

The Emiliano sits at the end of the most renowned street of SP, which in my opinion is always a big plus regardless the city or place you visit. It features a big parking right below the hotel building - very useful to us since we were traveling with our own car.

Even if built almost 15 years ago, the hotel’s design and taste are still up to date. Lounge, restaurant and rooms are very neat, simple but at the same time chic and modern with some interesting touches of contemporary art.

We tried the Suite Emiliano and the Deluxe twin room.
Both were very nice and impeccably clean, though the first was of a clearly different level: very spacious and luminous with glass doors facing the main street, large bathroom, great sofa and bed, fast wifi connection, equipped with all the possible features needed for a pleasant business or leisure stay. I've also enjoyed the fresh fruit and little treats delivered at your arrival and every morning during the stay.

The staff was extremely professional even though more oriented to a business clientele I think.

I would definitely return and highly recommend especially if travelling on business trips.

This hotel is lovely - the service and food are amazing. The staff are friendly and the beds so comfy it was like being at home! The only real negative comment was that the lift areas and corridors are slightly shabby and the lifts slow - would definitely return!

This is the best hotel in São Paulo. It's expensive, yes, but even better then Porto Bay. Rooms are spacious, very tastefully designed, with a lot of pillows on the bed. And the amenities in the room and bathroom were among the best I have ever seen in a hotel (girls love). The shower is also great! If you can, try to stay here at least a day. It's perfect for romance! The restaurant and SPA is also very good.

I stayed in the hotel as part of a corporate event (even though I currently live in the city, so I haven't been in a SP hotel in a while).

The hotel is located in "Jardims" the classiest district of Sao Paulo, wiht plenty of restaurants and nice stores (for Sao Paulo's standards, so far from NYC or Paris) within walking distance.

I must say that the service is very attentive. They offer you free water/refreshments when checking in, plus a courtesy 15 minute massage.

the spa, while small, is very nice. Great massages plus free "ofuro" outdoors, in a little patio surrounded by vegetation, so that you don't believe you are in the city.

The restaurant, while expensive, is very good.

I recommend the hotel for those comming to Sao Paulo for business. I would say the price of the hotel is quite expensive.
